Delkevic with db killer removed
« on: May 12, 2017, 17:34:32 »
Hi all
I recently fitted a 350mm oval delkevic exhaust to my 2012 DL650. I've been running it with the db killer installed but would like to remove it. The only thing stopping me at the moment is a concern of running the bike lean. Has anyone had a bike on a dyno with this set up and the db killer removed?

Are Delkevic making an exhaust now for the 2012> DL650? on their website I can only find exhausts for the old model,
starting to think about fitting an end can again, the bike is just a bit too quiet, while it's great for long runs it is just a bit too bland for me at times.

Your lamda sensor will ensure it doesn't run too lean.

Any chance you could post a pic of the exhaust fitted? was it difficult to fit?
I see it listed on ebay now, I might try buying direct from them to get the forum discount, the 350mm oval seems about right to me, around 4kg weight saving too.
